Scent of the day, Day 17!


PERFUME: Waterfall

COMPANY: Possets

AVAILABILITY: Summer 2011: Yoga (Limited Edition)

OFFICIAL DESCRIPTION: Imagine a divine, cold, blue, driving waterfall. This fragrance captures the feel of the pose waterfall as you bend at the waist and let your arms cradle each other in the crook of your arm and you rock to and fro. Again a relaxing pose which restores you as you perform it. Indigo musk and aquatic musk mingle with an ozone note. This one is very dry, non floral or foody and exceptionally serene.

BEFORE I SMELL: I don’t have a success with aquatic scents. When I was a teenager I loved them maybe that’s why I keep sampling that kind of scents.

FROM THE DECANT/BOTTLE: Ozone

WET ON SKIN: Ozone and a sweet note as well

DRY DOWN: I don’t know why I am still getting that sweet note…

FINAL THOUGHTS:  I don’t like this.  It’s like a sweet hand soap. Like the ones which are made for little girls. Maybe, I will use  my sample as a home scent in my burner...

  1. I think it's challenging for companies to make aquatic scents without making them smell artificial. It's too bad this one didn't work for you! I like Selkie by Haus of Gloi for an ocean-type of scent, though it's not ozone-y. Liber Vix also said Solstice Scents makes a good ocean scent called Tenebrous Mist :)

    1. It must be very difficult indeed. We often associate these scents with cleaning products or air-fresheners. So, an aquatic perfume is as you said a challenge! I love so many perfumes from possets that is ok that I don’t like a few! It was only a sample so no big deal! Thank you for the recommendation. I will try these two definitely in the future! Selkie would be great in a scrub too! I hope they will make it again!

  2. I am not a fan of aquatic scents either - they always just either smell fake or smell of nothing on me. And the ocean ones always smell kind of fishy/briny, but I don't know if they are really smelling like that or if it's just my brain making that association.

    1. Our brains do tricky things with scents. Once I had a perfume that to my mind it was smelling like a lentil soup! I couldn't wear it.

      Speaking of aquatic and fishy scents. Bpal actually had one on their Halloween update which the notes were: Fish and ceremonial incense!
